Obama Wins Iowa

Don't Migrate Just Yet! It has been confirmed that Barack Obama has won the Iowa Caucus.

Not only did Obama win, he smacked up the competition with 38%. Edwards came in second with 30% and Clinton came in third with 29%. I was hoping Obama would win, but I didn't expect such a commanding margin of victory. Eight percentage points may not seem like a lot at first glance but it really is something when you think about Hillary Clinton was expected to demolish all competition. And considering how tight the race has been and especially considering that he's a brother in an almost entirely white state.

Did you see the victory speech? Man, that was something. In case you missed it...



As big as tonight's victory is, this is only the beginning. The New Hampshire Primary is on January 8th.

Let's continue making history.

I've been trying to do my best impression of a disinterested bystander this time around. But dang, that speech was awesome!

I couldn't be more proud of Barack Obama - a brother is poised to be the first Black President of the United States of America. Make note of tonight, it is indeed historic.

Barack, Boma Ye!
